Written by the leading expert in child character development, every page is filled with practical, proven, and wise advise as well as captivating stories, sound insights and solid ideas. If we practice Dr. Lickona's wise, proven, and warm advise, we will raise a generation of thriving, kindhearted kids who want to better the world. And that will be our greatest legacy. So, let's roll up our sleeves and begin. We have work to do, but following the framework and advise in this critical book will help every child become kind and caring.

Tom Lickona has led the character education movement in schools for forty years. His latest book, "How to Raise Kind Kids: and Get Respect, Gratitude, and a Happier Family in the Bargain," is the fruit of his experience as a character coach to his own family and countless other families and schools. We all want our children to be kind, considerate, and grateful, instead of thankless, complaining, and self-centred. This book — richly suffused with anecdotes from real family situations — is a masterpiece of practical wisdom.

To be kind doesn't just mean being "nice." It means being humble, having empathy, showing compassion, and helping and serving others. These qualities don't happen naturally. They need to be taught and modeled in the home and in our schools. Dr. Tom Lickona, a developmental psychologist and one of the pioneers in the Character Education movement, has provided a wealth of practical and proven strategies for raising kind kids. Kind kids grow into kind adults, and we need millions more of them. This is a must-read for parents who want to bring out the best in their children.
